          Location is like in the heart of the city. Everything.. Food, beach, ATM, supermarkets, places to visit.. Etc all are just walkable distance. Food from its own restaurant was amazing.. The building is old French villa, so it was a good experience. Great hospitality.. We really felt like home. Will stay here next time and is highly recommended.

          Best location as apart from Aurovilla everything is at walkable distance from this awesome property. Staying in actual hotel and heritage hotel are totally different. We can feel french colonial in this property. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is also good. Only missing is swimming pull but can be compromise over bath tub. Overall 10/10 stars from me to this Hotel.

          Located in Prime area”

          Duparc is a saviour as we felt that podicherry is over rated tourist destination. Slightly priced on the higher side. We liked the deluxe rooms with French look. Breakfast was decent. Just opposite go vinayagar temple. Stones throw away from the beach. Nice hotel with skywalk type elevation where enjoyed some coffee and nice pics. Staff very friendly and cooperative.allowed us for early check in. (4 hours early) Located inside French colony. Cons: Slightly overpriced (ok if it is in ur budget) Breakfast spread can be better. Especially continental. Ventilation is less in the rooms. Overall if you want a different experience staying In a French style room in budget you can opt for it as other French style hotels are at least 40% higher priced. I must say the price is a bit on the higher side as they have only 9 rooms .

          Central situation in White Town adjacent to shops, local businesses and easy walking distance to most of the sights, restaurants and cafes of the Old French Quarter. Helpful and attentive staff with kind concern. The rooms are characterful, clean and good value for money.

          Great Location!”

          This hotel was at a great location - opposite Sri Manakula Vinayagar Temple and close to Aurobindo Ashram and the Rock Beach. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. They helped us get a cab back to Chennai airport via Mahabalipuram - but unfortunately we had communication issues with the driver (P. Raja) whose English skills were very limited and even though we asked for a car till 6 PM, we were dropped off at the airport at 4 PM - thereby missing on sightseeing along the route. Wouldn't recommend him unless you speak Tamil.

          Great Location & Staff”

          To start with the staff of the hotel are extremely polite and helpful. Breakfast is limited but good enough. Location is a 10/10 - exploring French Town as well getting on ECR to visit Auroville. The rooms are kept clean and the air conditioning was good. The bathroom is a tad dated and can use a bit of a do over however housekeeping was good. Would definitely recommend this property for its location and staff.

          Beautiful Heritage Villa”

          Beautiful Heritage villa right in the heart of Pondicherry. Near to Aurobindo ashram as well as Marine drive. Nestled in trees. Quaint with only 9 rooms. All furniture antique wooden. Great service from staff. We were travelling with a small baby and they were really helpful everytime we needed assistance. Hotel could do though with a little makeover paint is chipping off in places but that was really a small worry. I will definitely recommend and stay the next time. In pondicherry

          Hotel with just basic facilities ”

          Though it is a french building, they have built a lot of walkways inside using iron and wood, which spoils the old French architecture. There is no bar and breakfast is also very basic.
